Maturity comes to us in different ways and at different times. I am relearning this every day. I recently posted about SOTM in response to another post by the starter of this one in an honest effort to show concordance. I mean, I like the song. He sang I’d rather be with you. ‘Hey easier than doing a solo?’ He soloed also. To vamp the line (with feeling) isn’t a bad thing to me - Jerry was my king of soul.

It is stupid for me to get pissed over anything here, and replying to you here may not be the most prudent thing to do, but the tone of the guys remarks didn’t sit well with me, and that is kinda crazy since I love the same music he does. I just don’t see the value of his approach. Unless it is to show how ridiculous things can be. Regardless, I mean no offense to you DD. Peace, Dan

To be honest , I'm often can get annoyed by too much repetition in any song ( though you are right that Jerry's vamping had his innate soul behind it), and vocal histrionics at the end of a song ( LLRain) can work live, but in the cold of a stereo listen can seem like wasting time , for me , and that is not all the time .
Hell I like James Brown's "Please,Please,Please", and try counting the times he says "please in THAT song !
No offense taken, just "ratchet jawing" 'bout this band we all love .
Peace to you too !

I hear you on this for sure...Bob at the end of a LL, NFA, or even SugMags, really drives the wife, and the one kid that LOVES them, crazy...he rates SugMags, one his favs, according to how many screams Bob does...(SSDDream, strictly speaking of course).

That' pretty funny ! I can see someone shaking his head , putting check marks on a scorecard . New feature in Deadbase, "scream rating".

Ha! That's him exactly! If it's three or more, he starts shaking his head!
